Internship Final Project
Description: The internship project/report should
represent your duties and accomplishments throughout the course of your experience.
The project serves several purposes:
It summarizes what you have learned during the semester.
It provides evidence of professional expertise, which might be used in job pursuits.
It provides examples and more detailed description of your experience than given in your journal entries.
The precise format of the project is different for each internship. The format of the project MUST be approved by your internship coordinator prior to developing the project. However, here are some general suggestions and guidelines for developing your project or report.
You may wish to present samples of the work you have produced during your internship in a professional package (for example, a Web site, CD, or print portfolio). The samples will vary depending on the internship duties. Some examples may be form designs, code interaction, market strategies for digital audiences, Web or multimedia productions. Your presentation should provide description and explanation for each sample you include - it could also incorporate earlier versions of a project to show your development of an idea.
If your internship doesn't lend itself to compiling a set of sample materials, you may wish to create a document - written report or multimedia/Web presentation - that offers a more extensive and perhaps critical description of and reflection on your internship experience, including a consideration of the ways in which your internship relates to your coursework in the DArt program.
There are 2 steps to completing this project/report.
1. Project Approval:
You must get approval from your internship coordinator prior to starting the project. At that time, you should discuss the project type, length and other requirements.
2. Project Completion:
The project should be completed by the deadline on the syllabus. If you plan to have your project reviewed by someone at your internship site, you need to be sure to add that into your completion schedule. Grading: The project will be graded on its quality, completeness and timeliness.
